As I'm sitting in my urban Oasis and thinking about how peaceful I feel every time I come here. I also thought about how stressful life has been for friends, family and people in general. I thought back to a quote I fell in love with the 1st moment I read it , "stress does not go with my outfit."
I've used this quote several times with colleagues to express discontent for any situation that tried to alter my good spirits. It's poignant and it has a little sass, which is definitely me.
And if stress doesn't go with my outfit, it sure doesn't go with my hairstyle either! Ha!
We all know stress isn't healthy for the mind, body or spirit. If you are not healthy then there's a possibility your hair isn't either. For example, you can suffer from hair loss or hair thinning to name few.
No matter what products you buy your hair health may see little to zero improvement, if you are stressed. And yes there are other factors such as proper diet, exercise and genetics that contribute to your hair not being it's best, but stress doesn't help either.
We've all heard it before that you should always dedicate time for yourself but some of us never follow this great advice.
Over the past year and a half, I've definitely come to appreciate and I've heeded this advice. And yes, I know the world needs you...they should because you're special. However, you can't take care of others if you're not 100. It may seem selfish at first, but when you see the benefits you'll wonder why you didn't do it before.
Do you even remember what it was like when you didn't stress?? What did you enjoy doing? Is there something you've been wanting to try and haven't found the time? Or something you've been meaning to get back to doing, like going to a the spa regularly? Whatever you decide to do for yourself, it's perfect! just like NIKE says, Just do it!
SELF CARE = SELF LOVE...PERIODTTT!
"I've committed to spending a few minutes in the morning giving thanks and meditating before connecting to the world and every Friday is my Spa day. I pay extra attention to my skin care routine with some of my favorite products from Nadra Care :)"
